Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"

Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."

Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."

Cons: "The amount of delays causing us to miss our connection and be stuck in another city for a night before getting to our destination the next day(hopefully)."
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "Good selection of free, in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed on the runway, but that wasn't the airlines fault."
Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."

Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"
Pros: "I was able to pick my own flight online easily."

Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."
Pros: "Great plane"
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."
Pros: "I liked nothing about my flight. It was like being waterboarded and held up for my money at the same time. How can you fit so many tiny seats on one plane. And then have 80 year old woman berate us if we as much as have to go to the bathroom. I understand that there is a profit margin,but treating people so poorly is a nice way to do it."
Cons: "The service, the tiny seats, the filthy plane, the gross food( why even bother?) the rude flight attendants and being told I was flying Air France when actually it was a horrible American carrier."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"

Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"
Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "General flight journey"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "My seat at the window was great and the staff really friendly and courteous!"
Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."

Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Cons: "Not losing my luggage"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, no leg room, no space between seats and the trays hit ones’s stomach. The whole experience was very uncomfortable. The food was awful. Overheated and not cooked through at the same time. Breakfast was odd. Non-Greek yoghurt and cashews. Just strange."
Pros: "Loved Finnair. Hated Justfly.com. If you own this company, you need to end up like Blockbuster or Circuit City."
Cons: "If I would have purchased my tickets from Finnair.com, I would have had a much better experience. Kayak found me a good price but purchasing the tickets through Justfly.com was the biggest mistake of my life. The trip ended up costing me $285 more than what I budgeted and there was zero customer ser"
Pros: "A350, smooth and quiet. Nice plane"
Cons: "Seats in business are a little crowded and close together. opening to get in and out of seat is minimal"
Pros: "Clean less of the plane"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at all"
Pros: "Leg room, friendly crew, good choices for entertainment, nice blankets!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour, but the transfer in Helsinki was easy, I made it to the connect flight just in time for boarding"
Pros: "I enjoy my flight"
Cons: "Again no complains"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. Missed the connection flight."
Cons: "Plane was 1 hour late and missed my flight."
Pros: "Very nice staff. Probably one of the best flights"
Pros: "Loved it"
Pros: "The meal that they served was great."
Cons: "The leg room for someone that is 6ft 4in is not the best."
Pros: "good service in spite of rather crammed conditions and short flight, UK newspaper was available, plenty of leg room (biz class consisting of one row in the front:))) - the lucky 4 in that 1st row were the only ones to get food, and also drink for free, it seems... and yes, the flight was short and otherwise uneventful, I was the 1st to walk off the plane."
Cons: "The plane was a tiny oldish commuter jet with 2 seats on each side of the aisle. In "biz class" you still had to rub elbows with your neighbor, something other airlines with newer planes have sorted out, but allowing extra space between seats.... but overall, for a short flight (not much longer than an average subway commute in NYC), it really was not a huge deal...."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Sitting in last row of business, coach passengers talking loud, bumping and kicking my seat back. I wouldn't call it business at all."
Pros: "The ease at which the check-in and boarding was done"
Pros: "Crew is very nice and helpful. Food is just fine."
Cons: "Seats are too close and not enough space for my legs. I am 187 (6'2"). No outlets for phone charging."
Pros: "The shorter flight to Zurich was on a smaller plane than the overseas one, but I'm not sure what model. It seemed about average for comfort; overhead bins held my backpack easily, while I find many older planes do not. Coffee or soda was free, everything else was for sale. Attendants on this flight were very busy and very friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. My check-through luggage arrived intact. Overall a good experience on a two-hour journey. Plane arrived about 10 minutes ahead of schedule, which is always a plus."
Cons: "No real issues with this flight. it accomplished my objective - to get to Switzerland intact, with a minimum of fuss."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "leg room, service, movie selection"
Cons: "the arm rests don't go up, the food was weird. It's nice that they served two meals but both of my vegetarian option meals were cold and unidentifiable."
Pros: "Great service and great food."
Cons: "The long hours"
Pros: "was very disappointing that website doesn't have full information regards the second bag check in. The cost is different from checking on the web and checking at the airport."
Cons: "all the info should be listed on the web as well that the cost is half more than the website"
Pros: "All standard service, nothing extremely good or bad."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Entertainment system kept breaking."
Pros: "Friendly service, lots of movies, Marimekko design."
Cons: "Seats too close together front to back. If the person in front of you lies down the back of their seat is in your face."
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and efficient, boarding flowed smoothly."
Cons: "Customers should be able to indicate their food preference before the flight, i.e. chicken, beef, vegetarian, etc., instead of taking pot luck or paying more than $12 for the option of selecting beforehand. In addition, there is a great deal of waste in giving everyone sugar, salt, creamer, etc. I know it's more efficient for the flight attendants, but I hate to see so much waste."
Pros: "My stay in the air was approximately about an hour from stockholm to Helsinki. They smiled me and gave comfortable service as always . Thanks"
Cons: "It may be not about flying process but airport environment or service. ARN airport was a bit cold even inside of the building . The WiFi was offered only limited time , which was very shorter than I expected but overall status with cosy mood made me as if I were at home . On the other hand , the finnair check in counter had only two , one of which was business and the other was economy it took about 40mins to send my luggage and check in ."
Pros: "I was a bit surprised by cabin crew 's welcoming words that were my native language ,which ware very familiar and joyful . I didn't feel well at that time with a severe cold and I endured during the entire fly . I know it's kind of bad but I made it to my country safely. The food was Korean food and I really enjoyed and loved it so much .The Helsinki airport is great with smoking booth and warm ."
Cons: "Nothing but I wonder if they could change my seat to upper one despite my additional fare because I felt bad the day and they had cold pills like medicine."
Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"
Pros: "Polite crew.. 2 meals.. very smooth overall"
Cons: "Not enough leg room.. had to physically climb over neighbor to get to the aisle"
Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."
Cons: "I am 6'1" tall. Seats were designed for 5'1" persons."
Pros: "The new 777 airplanes were exceptional as well as the splendid airline crew!"
Pros: "The options for music and movies were good, but the poor service provided, at check-in and on board, outweighed any benefit we received from the entertainment."
Cons: "The crew at Barcelona Airport, especially "Javier" (he refused to give his last name or show his badge - he had it turned around) was very rude and unhelpful. We had to go to another desk person to help us who was a bit more polite. The Finnair Customer Service telephone service was completely unhelpful even though this was booked as a Finnair Flight. The crew on board was ok, at best. The food was the poorest we had in both flights we took (we travelled from Barcelona to JFK, New York, and from JFK to YVR, Vancouver). We were most pleased with our flight from New York to Vancouver, with Cathay Pacific, who, by comparison, had very helpful and pleasant staff both at the JFK Airport and on board."
Pros: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off. Completely ruined plans we had made for our first day in London"
Cons: "The crew moved me to another seat on the return flight which allowed me entertainment but I hadThe entertainment console at my seat location on both flights to and from London did not work. That's 10 hours! to move away from my companions."
Pros: "Crew was (as usual on BA flights) friendly, attentive, and personable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Everyone was all bunched up and you could not get through when your rows were called. Also, when they "boarded by rows" the called rows 23-50+ all at once so that people were all bunched up in the isles of the plane. It really did not help"
Cons: "Plane was not even parked at a gate. hat to be shuttled from plane to terminal"
Cons: "Never picking up garbage (telling us the next crew will do that) The cabin a mess. NO LEG ROOM. Terrible."
Pros: "Everything was good ,plane was on time,food was good for Airline food and was clean."
Cons: "The crew was pleasant but they needed to smile more . Other than that everything was good."
Cons: "It is absolutely ridiculous that they made us pay $100 each way for our ski bag/equipment. I will never fly either airline again. Horrible customer service as well. The airplane and its entertainment system is quite antiquated and needs to be updated. Horrible experience."
Cons: "Small uncomfortable airplane."
Pros: "The flight crew were professional and friendly."
Cons: "the seats are too small and cramped. I am quite small and I felt cramped. I feel on long flights there should be more leg room"
Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Food is only average and not enough good movies to watch"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room."
Cons: "Plane was broken and we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to get a new plane. Crew kept awkwardly mentioning during every announcement that the delay wasn't their fault... My husband's entertainment screen was broken and flickering so much that all shows/films were completely unwatchable. My screen began flickering 1/2way through a film."
Pros: "Checking was a breeze and there were no hassles getting through security. The flight was great and they even had a vegetarian option for my meal! I would highly recommend to anyone for International flight!"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Arrived on time. Unnoticeable smooth landing."
Cons: "OK. For what I paid, I am not expecting much."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi"
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working on all seats"

Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."

Pros: "Flight attendant was rude to my non French speaking 12 year old. He ripped his charger out of the USB port and threw it at him."
Cons: "TSA was sketchy and gave a FULL search, part down, etc. I kept asking and the excuse kept changing. Final excuse ridiculous! Flight attendant could have not treated my son as he way he did. I was unaware that the usb cord being inputted during taxiing As was my son. He was horrible to him!!"

Cons: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag.

Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."
Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "Courteous crew"

Cons: "Premium economy seats do not recline, only slouch. One of our 2 seats wouldn't slouch more than half way. The entertainment options are extremely sparse and the screens are 4:3 ratio, tiny, and of such poor quality that they look like laptop monitors from 1999."

Pros: "It was a 30min flight not much to say The crew on the ground really took care of us"
Pros: "That it was a night flight"
Cons: "No airconditioning, no food choice, no space."
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Having to pay for everything."
Pros: "The plane was modern and clean and the crew was fine."

Cons: "5 hours of flight in narrow sits and only a small drink cup offered. No complementary food."

Pros: "Good entertainment options and device charging."
Cons: "No meal. One drink."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and efficient. Made sense to do it from the rear of the plane forward, by rows. Flight attnendants courteous and very helpful. Pillow/blanket/multiple non-alcoholic beverage services. Limited but adequate movie/tv selection. I watched all the Icelandair Iceland travel specials instead--highly recommend. We were delayed 20 mins leaving as the incoming flight was late but we made up the time in the air. Minimal/unobtrusive cockpit announcements. Very nice red eye flight."
Pros: "I was the first one off the plane"
Cons: "The emergency door was in front of my seat. I couldn't sit without my knees hitting it or at an angle which is uncomfortable. I asked the flight attendants if I could I've and they said "no it's a different class". I paid for a seat on your airline and all I wanted was that seat but was given something Waltham was not what I paid for. Also, I had to hold my water bottle and book bc there was no seat back pocket. It was a miserable flight. Especially since the gentleman on the other side of the plane in front of the emerge door was able to move to one of the seats that, "was a different class". I guess just a different class for me??"
Pros: "Arrived safe."
Cons: "Technical problems kept us at gate for 3 hours."
Cons: "I was surprised that we did not get a meal service, not even a little snack for a long hall, from D.C. to Iceland. The only service we had was the water. I probably won't fly with this airline again....Sorry."

Pros: "I liked being greeted at the door with a bottle of Iceland water. The flight attendants were very professional and helpful."
Cons: "No meal on the flight."
Pros: "Flight was cheapest option for a family of 6. We had mechanical issues prior to leaving DC and missed our connecting flight. Icelandair did a great job in putting us in a hotel and providing free transportation to and from the airport. Reykjavik is a beautiful city and we made the best of the layover. We plan to come back to Iceland for a longer visit to explore more."
Cons: "Next time I would plan for a stop over-- it seemed to run so smoothly that it must of happened often. We lost a day in Paris due to the delay which we were disappointed in and they did nothing for our lost hotel day that was paid for."
Cons: "It was delayed causing me to miss my connection"
Pros: "They set us up with free hotel in Reykavik, but that's about it."
Cons: "Where to start? They were delayed 3 hours leaving DC because of technical issues and kept promising us they would hold our connecting flight to Zurich. That of course didn't happen, so we proceeded to have to wait in a line at their service desk for 2.5 hours just so they could rebook us for the next day. We lost a day of our vacation due to Iceland Air incompetence"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Have no complaints at all"

Cons: "Delayed flight with no communication from boarding gate. Knew about delay from Kayak hours before we heard about it at the airport."

Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Did not realize that free meals were not provided. The trip ended without eating for 9 hours, as no hot meals were offered."
Cons: "Boarding/departure was 30 min late. Sat in the back of the plane - the stench coming from the bathroom was nearly vomit-inducing."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and the boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were stiff and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was good"
Cons: "The seats on our plane were the worst seats of my experience EVER. When you have to be seated for 5+ hours, some level of comfort is required. I could barely stand by the time we got to Iceland. NEVER again. I'm not usually picky but this was ridiculous"
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly people Check in was very easy When flight was delayed they held. The plane for us"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "No food on either flight. First flight was 20 minutes late, which made our one-hour layover very stressful. We asked the Icelandair woman at the gate if our bags made it even though our layover was short and she seemed annoyed by the question, and said "Yes. All the time." Our bags did not make it, and it took an hour and a half after waiting for our nonexistent bags for 30 minutes to report them as missing, as there were two employees in the office for 30 people whose bags didn't make it."
Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "The ac was bit working in our section and multiple toilets were malfunctioning."
Pros: "Inexpensive, efficient crew."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is doubling in size. They have increased the number of travelers into the airport before the infrastructure is ready! Consequently the lines and wait times for connecting travelers at passport control is unbearable! I guess this is the price we pay for low cost flights!"
Pros: "Schedule and cost"
Cons: "Well I guess you get what you paid for. Worst seats and comfort I've ever experienced flying."
Cons: "No food on a 5 Hours flight. Entertainment was very poor. Long flight delays made me waste most of my first day in London"
Cons: "I was delayed 9 hours due to a strike, including a 7 hour layover with no offer of compensation or assistance."
Pros: "The seating and cree."
Cons: "Unexpected reassignment of confirmed seats, and then reinstating the originally confirmed seats during boarding. This was very annoying at the least. Reykjavik airport was very cold. Did not appear they were running any heat. Landing and boarding from the turmack was not pleasant."
Pros: "Air traffic controllers strike was explained to us beforehand"
Pros: "Nice flight crew, seats more comfortable than I expected, in-flight entertainment system included music, movies, promotional videos...but make sure you bring your own headphones! They have some for purchase, though."
Cons: "Other than the 2 free checked bags, pretty much everything else costs extra. I didn't try any food or drinks, so I can't comment on them."
Cons: "my seat selection was changed while boarding. Was placed in front row next to door. Lots of leg room but also lots of cold air coming in from door...was freezing the whole time despite blankets"
Pros: "Excellent service, very friendly staff, more leg room even in economy, great bang for your buck. Wish all airlines were more like Iceland Air."
Cons: "Thought really hard about this question... Nothing negative, really."
Pros: "The staff did a great, efficinet job of boarding the passengers. They did everthing that tthe crew in Reykjavik did not. (Please see below.) The boarding was smooth and we departed on schedule."
Pros: "A surprising amount of legroom! The flight was incredibly well managed. We were well taken care of and everything was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "The gate at Keflavik had nowhere to sit. I prefer some sort of included food, but all of it requires payment--even little snacks."
Pros: "The boarding was done well, with those in the back of the plane boarding first, which cut down on crowding and people standing in the aisles! The lights in the cabin were designed to look like the Northern Lights, which was beautiful, relaxing and made me even more excited to be going to Iceland."
Cons: "There were very few entertainment options (not many movies, music, or television shows) and the screen was not user friendly."
Pros: "Great Crew, entertainment, service and comfort. Nice that you provide USB plugs for charging devices."
Cons: "Paying for food. However the process of using debit card to pay for it was easy, but just not use to paying for food on a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "The food was good and reasonable. I paid more at the airport and it sandwich was so dry I left half of it uneaten. I had the "spicy chicken" sandwich which is not hot spicy, but very tasty. And the "happy wedding "cake and a soda. Very happy with most things. I came by wheel chair, but was able to walk to the plane. Maybe there was a misunderstanding, but I did have to stand awhile at the front of the plane before being allowed to sit. Trip went well. We had a fair amount of turbulence, but it was announced. and handled very well."
Cons: "More water please! I"
Cons: "No food included on almost 6-hours flight"
Pros: "Baggage care Friendly staff Food options"
Cons: "Small seats No meals served for free Bus flights connection at Reykjavik airport Signals and directions at Reykjavik airport"
